MANY HANDS Gallery presents the exhibition After-Life Portraits by Ethan Moore. Playing with perspective and sight, the works are collaged in unusual materials and formed with stylized dots. The subjects of these portraits are deceased icons and monsters. The dots are made of phosphorescent paint which creates a mystical experience when viewed in the dark. They exist in two perspectives; in the daylight, a galaxy of vivid colors support the scene for a translucent portrait. In the dark, the background disappears, the paintings borders dissolve and the paints' green ephemeral glow informs the portraits subject. These works are playful yet menacing, visible and invisible, all while connecting the theory that ghosts manifest form through accessing localized energy; here the phophorescent paint glows by absorbing the light specturms energy.
MANY HANDS Gallery presents the exhibition by Max Butler, artist and musician. He plays in a very unique, turn of the century, hilbilly band that uses saw blades and banjos to create lively and entertaining music for his listeners. The chicken and rooster motif, prolific through his collection , captures this musical energy in charm and color.
MANY HANDS Gallery presents the exhibition Drool by Kenneth Moore. Since the sixties, Kenneth has expored the movement, blending and separation of arylics and their emultion. Often compared to Jackson Pollick, Ken has pioneered this fluid, abstract blednding of colors. Much like a Roarshack Inkblot test, the artist leaves the interpretation of his work to the individual.
